Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi posted that Lala was the cheater in the relationship, and she told Lala to stop bashing Randall in the press. Now, after GG’s shady post, Katie Maloney is standing up for her Vanderpump Rules co-star.
In an interview with Page Six, Katie said, “People don’t really know enough about the situation.”
Then, she addressed GG directly: “You don’t really know what you’re saying here.”
On Twitter, GG had written, “If I recall correctly u [Lala] were bragging about going down on your castmate & the timeline puts u in a relationship at that time. Cheater?”
Katie addressed this hookup (with Ariana Madix) in the interview with Page Six: “We were all there in real-time for that and no one’s calling her a cheater for that.”
She expressed that Lala has the “choice” to discuss the breakup publicly if she wishes. “She can handle this however she wants to handle it,” said Katie. “Why [is GG] publicly speaking on something that has nothing to do with [her]? It’s a little weird to me.”
Katie expressed it was “very easy” to stop speaking to Randall after she learned of his reported affairs.
“It can feel very isolating and lonely when you feel blindsided and, completely out of left field, this person that you were with for so long is not the person that you thought that they were,” she said.
“I got wind of it, and I was the one that called [Lala] to let her know,” said Katie. “I just wanted her to know that she was loved and appreciated and that she’s amazing no matter what. You just want to prop people up.”
Ultimately, Katie thinks Lala is better off without Randall and said “she’s ready to take on the world!”
The Bravo star added, “Obviously, it hasn’t been easy. But she is so tough. I’m proud of her for being strong for her and for [her daughter] Ocean.”
